A course in I-language: pdf slides organized by topic and/or chapter, with .tex files and graphics to enable easy adaptation to any classroom organization.

A file containing all data sets and tables from the book is also provided below for building slides from scratch. Browse by topic; right-click (PC) or ctrl+click (Mac) the .pdf or .tex link to save a file.

.tex files are used with LaTeX, a highly versatile (and free!) typsetting suite. Download LaTeX at the LaTeX project (click). Get started with LaTeX for Linguists (click). These files are ready for regular latex, not pdflatex. You will need to change the path for embedded graphics files in each .tex document.
